“Being invited to sing a duet with Ann-Margret was pretty much a no-brainer for me because I’ve always been a fan of hers,” shares Sheppard. “It was a great honor and pleasure to join Ann-Margret along with Pete Townshend of The Who. It’s not every day you get to see your name alongside such icons as these two are in the entertainment world.”
“I am very honored and proud to have had this opportunity to record ‘Born To Be Wild’ for Brian Perera’s Cleopatra Records. What fun I had, and then to find all of the great artists that lent their support for this project,” Ann-Margret stated. “Reading the quote from my dear friend Pete Townshend brought back such great memories. Thank you all – Brian, Tim, Ken, Adam, Jurgen, Shore Fire, and everyone involved.”
